filesshar -S [
Create shell archives (“shar” files) that are in text format and can be mailed. These files may be unpacked later by executing them with /bin/sh. Other commands may be required on the recipient’s system, such as compress, gzip, and uudecode. The resulting archive is sent to standard output unless the -o option is given.
Allows automatic generation of headers. The -n option is required if the -a option is used.
Use -b bits as a parameter to compress (when doing compression). Default value is 12. The -b option automatically turns on -Z.
Start the shar file with a line that says “Cut here.”
Use delimiter for the files in the shar instead of SHAR_EOF.
Causes only simple filenames to be used when restoring, which is useful when building a shar from several directories or another directory. (If a directory name is passed to shar, the substructure of that directory will be restored whether or not -f is used.)
Use -level as a parameter to gzip (when doing compression). Default is 9. The -g option turns on the -z option by default.
Print a help summary on standard output, then exit.
Limit the output file size to nn kilobytes but don’t split input files. Requires use of -o.
Don’t generate touch commands to restore the file ...
